Deniz Gunduz received the B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from METU, Ankara, Turkey, in 2002, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, Brooklyn, NY in 2004 and 2007, respectively. He is currently a Lecturer (Assistant Prof.) in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of Imperial College London. Previously he was a Research Associate at CTTC, Barcelona, Spain, a Consulting Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, and a postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University. He also held a visiting research collaborator position at Princeton University from October 2009 until November 2011.

Dr. Gunduz is an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Communications and the IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking. Previously, he served as an editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) Series on Green Communications and Networking, and as a guest editor of the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking, Special Issue on Recent Advances in Optimization Techniques in Wireless Communication Networks. He served as a co-chair of the IEEE Information Theory Society Student Committee from 2012 until 2015. He served as the general co-chair of the 2018 ITG Workshop on Smart Antennas and the 2016 IEEE Information Theory Workshop, and the Symposium Co-chair of the 2017 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference. He also organised the 2012 European School of Information Theory (ESIT). He is the recipient of the 2017 Early Achievement Award of the IEEE Communications Society Communication Theory Technical Committee (CTTC)a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC), the 2014 IEEE Communications Society Best Young Researcher Award for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region.
